Missing Malaysia Airline MH 370 reportedly crashed in Chinese water
Beijing: On Saturday, a Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370, which was carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members, crashed in the sea en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, said the source. The plane had lost contact with air traffic controllers.

According to source, "The Vietnamese Navy had confirmed that the plane crashed into the ocean, as the plane crash was detected by Vietnamese military radar."

"Malaysia Airline is currently working with the authorities, who have activated their Search-And-Rescue teams to find the location of the aircraft," as per airline authorities said.

Flight MH 370, operating a Boeing B777-200 aircraft departed from Kuala Lumpur at 12.21am (1621 GMT on Friday) and had been expected to land in the Chinese capital at 6.30am (2230 GMT) on the same day.

The airline said that the flight had lost contact with Malaysian air traffic controllers at 2.40 am, just over two hours into the flight.

The airline said Flight MH370 was carrying passengers from 12 different countries, including 160 Chinese nationals, 12 Indian, 7 Australian and four American, as per reports radar contact with the flight was lost while it was in Vietnamese airspace.

According to sources, the plane crash would mark the second fatal accident involving a Boeing 777 in less than a year, after an unblemished safety record since the jet entered service in 1995.

Last summer, an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 crash landed in San Francisco, killing three passengers.

Boeing said the Search-And Rescue team is activated to locate the crash aircraft in the Chinese water.
